WELCOME TO round 2

Cameron McConville - Series Director Welcome to the second round of the 2016 Shannons Motor Racing Nationals presented by Penrite. For the first time in National’s history we have two CAMS National Championships for Australian GT on the one race weekend. To kick off a great weekend at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, two Australian GT Championship one-hour events on Saturday will be followed by the 101 lap ‘feature race’ for the CAMS Australian Endurance Championship for GT cars on Sunday. Without a doubt GT racing is on the rise and we are extremely proud to host some of the world’s biggest brands and fastest sports cars here at Phillip Island. As you walk around the paddock this weekend, you will see some of these manufacturers on show with the likes of Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and Aston Martin all represented.

We also welcome back Production Car racing to the Shannons Nationals with the Island 4 Hour Challenge kicking off Saturday afternoon. With the outstanding success of the recent Bathurst 6 Hour, the Australian Production Car Series also looks certain for a resurgence with new cars and drivers committing for 2016. Also joining us is Radical Australia for their second round of 2016, and a Phillip Island round of the Shannons Nationals wouldn’t be complete without the Australian F3 Premier Series. Finally a huge thank you to PIARC who assist CAMS in the running of the meeting and to our loyal supporters Shannons Insurance and Penrite Oil.

australia’s own gt WORDS: Mat Coch IMAGES: Nathan Wong/Dan Thompspn

When the chequered flag falls on Sunday afternoon, we’ll have witnessed Australian GT history. It will mark the end of the first ever round of the CAMS Australian Endurance Championship, and the end of the biggest weekend in the category’s history. Phillip Island marks the second round of the Shannons Nationals, but it will be the fourth round of the CAMS Australian GT Championship and the first ever round of the CAMS Australian Endurance Championship. With two different GT championships running on the same event, it’s going to be a massive weekend of racing. GT racing is growing globally, and Australia perhaps the fastest of them all. From just a single championship in 2015, there are now three separate competitions in 2016, all of which will run at least in part with the Shannons Nationals. Most of the world’s leading car makers have cars homologated to go GT3 racing. Mercedes has launched the all-new AMG GT3, the car which will replace the SLS, while BMW has entered the Australian GT with Steven Richards in 2016 with an M6 GT3. There is Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Chevrolet and more. The list reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the modern car industry with all the biggest players represented in some shape of form. Even Ford is in on the act, with its GT GT3. Peel back the layers of a GT car and underneath, you will find the same structure as found beneath the dealer-selling equivalent.

4 | THE RACING MAGAZINE

Each has its own chassis, its own bodyshape, its own drivetrain and gearbox. Each and every car is unique, with a personality. Each has a link to the poster on the bedroom wall and is therefore relatable. In the cabin they are Spartan, but that is what we’ve come to accept from a race car. In all other ways the cars on track are the same as the one which pulled up alongside your family saloon at the lights. That desire for a relatable form of motor sport, one that touring car racing has stepped away from over the decades, has fuelled the growth of GT3 racing in Europe. In turn, that has spurred manufacturers to further increase their support for GT3 cars in a self-fulfilling prophecy. As car makers work to meet the growing interest in their products, they are eagerly anticipated and lusted over by enthusiasts globally. GT racing appeals not only to the motor sport fan, but also the car enthusiast. In Europe, GT racing is dominated by the Blancpain series. Run by Stephane Ratel the championship has grown in stature almost in proportion to the demise of other categories such as the World Rally Championship, WTCC or the British Touring Car Championship. There are factory backed efforts and superstar drivers, names who’ve graced the podium in categories ranging from Formula One to DTM. Australia has followed that lead, and Australian GT now has three of the fastest growing competitions on the planet. From the ashes of the Australian

Nations Cup Championship, the foundations for the modern championship can be traced back to 2005. The series itself was first formed in the 1960s, only to fall by the wayside. There was a brief appearance in the 1980s too, but neither shared much in common with the category as it is today beyond its name. Tony Quinn purchased the category at the end of 2011. Under his stewardship Australian GT has continued to grow, thanks in part to Quinn’s management (also his off-siders Ken and Margaret Collier, who manage the dayto-day running of the category) but also as a halo effect of the increased popularity globally. Greater manufacturer interest internationally has seen them head down under, bringing with them some of the world’s leading drivers. The Bathurst 12 Hour has been instrumental in that and has helped forge relationships between local teams, drivers and their European counterparts. Because of that, Australian GT has welcomed the likes of Christopher Mies, an Audi factory driver, who won the championship last year. There have been other guest appearances too, while the calibre of machinery has tempted even a number of leading Supercar drivers to try their hand at GT racing. The series shows no sign of slowing down. In 2016 there are now three separate championships including the Australian GT Championship, Australian Endurance Championship and GT Trophy Series, each catering for a different style of racing. The Australian GT Championship


Australia has followed that lead, and Australian GT now has three of the fastest growing competitions on the planet.

power circuit Sandown is dubbed the ‘Home of Horsepower’ and OFFICIAL OIL PARTNER its two long straights make that title pretty apt. And while the TCM field is filled with cars offering plenty of ponies under the bonnets, everyone will keep one eye over their shoulder this weekend for Eddie Abelnica and his bright red, Melbourne’s Cheapest Cars XB Falcon. While we don’t know for sure if it’s got more grunt than any other car in the field or not, the fact it was clocked at 290km/hr at Bathurst last year (only 6km/hr down on the fastest V8 Supercar) makes it the fastest in the field. And at the home of horsepower that kind of straight line motivation is just the ticket.

will take on a sprint flavour, with one hour races throughout the season. The Australian Endurance Championship has adopted the 101 lap formula that has proved so popular with rounds split between Australia and New Zealand. This also means for the first time, the Highlands 101 will become a championship event after three years of a non-championship status. The championship will run over four rounds, each running to the popular 101-lap format. In recent seasons it’s proved a hugely popular style of racing, with events lasting close to three hours. Last year the Phillip Island 101 formed part of the Australian GT Championship, while since 2013 the season has ended with the non-championship Highlands 101 in New Zealand. This year both Phillip Island and Highlands host championship events, with the four-round championship also visiting Sydney Motorsport Park and Hampton Downs; another first for the category. In all, drivers are set for more than 1,700 kilometres across four races in two countries. The GT Trophy Series sees a championship designed deliberately for older-spec GT3 and even GT4

cars to race. Australian GT has always operated a class structure but for 2016 it’s the first time that those outside of Championship class have their own standalone title to race for. It’s an important addition as it gives greater life to older-spec cars, creating a market and easing the financial burden of purchasing a new car knowing it has just three years of competitive racing in it. At the other end of town are BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Ferrari, who’ve all developed new cars for the year ahead. Australia will witness the global competition debut of the Ferrari 488 GT3, the Scuderia’s first twin turbo since the F40. It’s a ground up GT3 car, unlike the 458 which was conceived as a production car before being upgraded to Challenge and then GT3 specification. Balance of performance regulations bring them all into line, ensuring for closer racing between the marques. Careful work goes in to bringing each different car onto an even playing field, all the while retaining their own advantages. The frontengined Mercedes, for example, are particularly strong under brakes as they can carry more speed into the

apex of the corner versus the rear engine cars, which need to have their braking done in a straight line before turning in. In the Australian GT Championship drivers can compete solo, though many do opt to share the car. One who has chosen not to however is Nathan Morcom, who is fresh off a round win at Barbagallo Raceway earlier this month. The McLaren 650S GT3 driver sits a narrow second in the championship table, one spot behind former two-time series champ Klark Quinn. It’s tight at the top though; there are just 12 points between first and third in the championship with the Audi pairing of James Koundouris and Marcus Marshall still very much in contention. This weekend raises the question; which car will suit the fast, sweeping Phillip Island circuit best? The Audi R8 LMS driven by Koundouris and Marshall proved victorious last year in the hands of Christopher Mies and Greg Crick, but will the 2016 model be just as fast?

WORDS: Amanda Jackson IMAGES: Nathan Wong

FOUR HOURS OF AUSTRALIAN PRODUCTION CARS Four hours of racing around the picturesque Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will provide the perfect first outing for the latest evolution of CAMS production car racing - the Australian Production Car Series.

Challenge thanks to a strong entry list – with each entry boasting at least two drivers, a veritable laundry list of racers has been created to keep spectators and those watching from home enthralled.

In 2016, the APCS will bring its unique style of endurance racing aboard a wide variety of production models to four exciting events across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland – starting with The Island 4 Hour Challenge at the prestigious Victorian venue.

“As a true endurance championship, the value for money on offer to competitors in the APCS is unrivalled due to the comparably low costs for the sheer amount of racing delivered by each weekend,” APCS category manager Iain Sherrin said.

Pitting what are perhaps more well-known to the public as ‘daily drives’ against each other in a battle of ingenuity, skills, technology and determination at some of Australia’s best race tracks; the APCS displays the prowess and skills of vehicles which can be purchased in the domestic automotive market. With six separate classes, all kinds of vehicles from high performance to hybrid racers are catered for, making for an incredibly diverse and interesting entry list every time the APCS heads to the race track. Certainly, that variety will be wellshowcased at the Island 4 Hour

8 | THE RACING MAGAZINE

“In addition, with all rounds of the APCS requiring at least two drivers, racers can spread their costs across a two or three-driver arrangement which makes what is already a grass roots program when it comes to affordability even more accessible. “Australian racing legends like John Bowe, Mal Rose and Glenn Seton and identities like Rick Bates, Dean Fiore, David Russell and Craig Baird have all been hosted by production car racing over the years, and it is a great place for young up and coming racers as well. “For instance, Chaz Mostert raced a BMW335i in 2011 and 2012 and even took home a race win in Sydney - all

while he was cutting his teeth in the Development Series - and recently used the Bathurst 6 Hour to make his comeback from his Bathurst 1000 crash in a BMW335i – winning the event with Nathan Morcom; while Aaron Seton moved up to driving in the Porsche GT3 Cup after a year in a Mitsubishi Evo. “Like these racers and many more, production car racing delivers an unbeatable and affordable opportunity to race with the best in production car racing, develop a career, and have fun. “For all of these reasons and more, we expect 2016 to be a banner year for production car racing in Australia in general, and the APCS in particular. “With a really strong entry list ondeck for the season opener, things are already looking bright, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the year unfolds for this passionate group of racers.” In Class A (Extreme Performance), Tony Alford will lead the way in a brand new Donut King Audi TT RS after taking out the 2015 Class A title in a BMW1M in 2015 from Beric


Lynton, who will also be hitting the track at Phillip Island in his Alphera Financial Services BMW1M. Alford will be joined in his new steed by top production car racer Stu Kostera. Also campaigning an Audi TT RS will be Mark Eddy, who will bring campaign his Network Clothing Audi TT RS with experienced GT and Porsche racer Dean Grant, while Luke Searle, Barry Graham and Supercar identity Paul Morris will run a BMW M135i. In Class B (High Performance) the formidable Sherrin Racing outfit will be back and looking to continue the success they found in 2015. After coming so close in 2014, last year saw the team clean up with Grant Sherrin taking out the outright championship, Class B championship and the Class B Australian Endurance Championship, while the team took out the Teams’ Championship. The team’s line-up will remain unchanged, with brothers Grant and Iain to take the wheel of the #18 Sherrin Rentals Racing BMW135i while their father Michael Sherrin and family friend David Ayres will steer the #19 Sherrin Rentals Racing BMW135i with the support of their dedicated crew. As the outright winners in 2015 the #18 will have a target on its back from the field, but one entry in particular will be looking to make sure they don’t taste glory at the opening round – their Class B competitors Steve Hodges and Rob Coulthard, who will campaign a Holden VY CSV Monaro Mondo at Phillip Island. Class C (Performance) is set to feature very competitive racing, with

both Osborne Motorsport Renault Meganes returning for 2016 alongside Francois Jouy/Franck Donniaux’s Renault Megane R265, as well as the Karadimas Motorsport Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo – which over the offseason has been upgraded to the latest Sprint package specifications. He will be joined at the wheel this season by Geoff Russell – father of well-known racing identity David Russell.

Joining the Swifts in Class E will be another Declan Kirkham-run Mazda (a Mazda Eunos 30x) and also the development team entry of Lauren Gray Motorsport, which has the youngest-ever pairing in the series (with an aggregate age of just 31) has already attracted plenty of attention. 15-year-old Liam Thompson will be joined by 16-yearold Ellexandra Best in the LGM Toyota Echo in their APCS debut.

Making Class C that little bit more interesting will be the fact that there will be a Ford versus Holden battle afoot, with Karadimas and his fellow Class C racers to take on the Holden VE Commodore of Hong Kong-based Aussie Troy Williams and his codriver Rich Pham – co-owner of the successful Asian BlackArts Racing outfit.

Also expected to grow this year is the Production Invitational class.

In Class D (Production), reigning class champions Pedders Racing will be back on track, with Grant Phillips and Andrew Turpie taking the wheel of their popular Toyota 86 with the support of their Motorsports Training Australia student crew. They will be joined by Carly Black in the Network Clothing Renault Clio, while Declan Kirkham will team up with his father Phil in a Mazda MX6.

“In the past, those racing in the Invitational class were not awarded round wins or class championship points – we have changed that so that they now can compete for class honours within the APCS. We are really looking forward to growing this class across 2016.”

“The Production Invitational class is able to give those production-based entries that were built for a specific category like the Mini Challenge or one-off races like the Australian Grand Prix Celebrity Race or the Bathurst 12 Hour a permanent home,” Sherrin said.

For more on the APCS, please visit australianproductioncars.com.au

Fans would also be advised to keep an eye out for a Suzuki Swift invasion, with no less than four taking part in Class E (Compact) – Thanks to the ‘arrive and drive’ program that was launched by APCS earlier this year in conjunction with GMC Motorsport Services. The drivers taking advantage of the program include Jamie Little, Patrick Galang, Jason Walsh, Paul Currie, Mitchell and Leigh Neylor, Scott Gore and Keith Bensley.

F3 Flashback at THE Island WORDS: Richard Craill IMAGE: Nathan Wong

Australian Formula 3 has produced some of the best racing ever seen at Phillip Island and to celebrate, we’ve put together what we think are the top five races from the series’ history at the Island. 5. SIMON HODGE VS BEN GERSEKOWSKI, 2014 Ben Gersekowski won a combative 9-lap sprint after a thrilling battle with title rival Simon Hodge that saw the pair swap the lead several times in the opening laps. The pair swapped the lead three times in the first two laps and and continued to duel before the battle came to a head on the fifth lap, when Hodge again looked down the inside at Turn 4 – his front wing making contact with Gersekowski’s rear tyre, braking the mounts of the Mygale’s front wing. Hodge ultimately slipped to fourth place at the finish behind the impressive Chelsea Angelo and Ricky Capo while Gersekowski went on to win a belter. 4. COOPER WINS IN THE WET, 2012 Hayden Cooper had a rough start to Race 2 of Round 7 at Phillip Island. For starters, the 17-year-old from Brisbane had never driven a Formula 3 car in the rain. Anywhere. It was pouring down when teams gridded up to start the sprint race. He then spun on the formation lap, covering his pristine white Dallara in mud in a hurry to make it to his fourth-place grid position. To make matters worse, he was then hit from behind when his car stalled on the warm up lap, damaging the rear diffuser and giving him a rude shock. What happened next was even more remarkable: the young Queenslander storming to the lead in the opening lap before pulling away to win by 49 (yes, 49!) seconds in an eight lap race. Only one wet

weather performance has been more controlling in the history of Australian F3 – more later in this feature. 3. LEANNE’S FIRST WIN, 2007 This race was hugely competitive however will be remembered more for the sensational maiden victory for Leanne Tander in the championship – the first by a female driver in 51 years of the Gold Star. Tander passed James Winslow around the outside of Turn 1 to take the victory, a breathless 255km/ hr wheel-to-wheel battle between two elite drivers that was waged for much of the first half of the race. The significance of the victory propelled Formula 3 to national headlines in the mainstream media and set the scene for a thrilling championship battle: with Winslow having won earlier in the day, Leanne’s victory saw her become the fifth different winner from six races to date that season. 2. CARATTI EDGES TANDER, 2008 A breathless race in late 2008 saw Nathan Caratti, driving for Team BRM, edge out Leanne Tander by 0.0695s in a thriller – the third closest winning margin in Formula 3 history. Tander got the jump off the line in Race 1 in dry conditions while Caratti slipped backwards after a slow getaway, slowly making his way back to the front. Caratti made a strong restart and drafted Tander on the run to Turn 1, passing the leader on the outside and briefly assuming the lead until Tander was able to resume the lead on the exit of Turn 2.

1. BEN CLUCAS VS MICHAEL TRIMBLE, 2006 It is still regarded as the greatest race in the history of Australian Formula 3: British driver Ben Clucas winning Race 1 in torrential conditions despite rolling at the start and serving a drive-through penalty. Clucas made the best start from pole but a safety car at the end of the opening lap slowed the field, with racing getting underway three laps later with Clucas escaping to a solid lead before serving his drive through penalty – dropping him to fifth and more than a minute behind the leader with nine laps to go. What followed was a stunning charge through the field, the webfooted Clucas clocking five seconds a lap quicker than anyone as he scythed his way towards the front. A safety car with four laps remaining also played into Clucas’ hands, the top three (Michael Trimble leading Tim Macrow and Clucas) line astern when the race restarted with just one lap remaining. Trimble made a strong restart, whilst Clucas slipped past Macrow on the run towards the Turn 4 hairpin. The championship leader then closed on Trimble with two corners remaining, sliding alongside the Victorian as the pair ran to the flag. What followed was a classic finish, Trimble pushing the Clucas machine to the inside of the racetrack as the pair crossed the line side by side. Clucas was scored as the winner – crossing the line an incredible .0039s ahead of Trimble in the closest finish in championship history.

Carartti then slipped past with two laps to go, but Tander retaliated and drafted her rival to the line, ultimately missing out by half a tenth in an absolute thriller.

racefuels & GT racing WORDS: Richard Craill IMAGES: RaceFuels Archive

RaceFuels and GT racing in Australia go back a long way – in fact, the genesis of a longstanding relationship between the two can be charted all the way back to the late, great Allan Simonsen belting the wall at the Clipsal 500.

Say what? In 2004, GT racing in Australia looked very different than it does now. The ‘GT Nations Cup’, run by PROCAR, was ultra-competitive yet struggled to attract ultimate numbers and also to manage the parity between top-level international GT cars and homegrown products like the famous, Bathurst-winning Holden Monaro’s. For 2004 Maranello Motorsport had drawn on their overseas Ferrari contacts to bring in a stunning 550 Maranello GT car, to be driven by Simonsen, for the full championship. It was a stunning thing: its bright green hues matching the support from South Australian beer company, Coopers. It became

an instant classic however it was Simonsen’s skill and daring behind the wheel that instantly appealed it to fans everywhere.

that point we didn’t have any input into that level of racing and certainly nothing into GT so we had to look into it.”

And yet, when the flying Dane incredibly passed Paul Stokell’s Lamborghini Diablo GTR around the outside of turn eight and whacked the wall on corner exit, all RaceFuels boss Mark Tierney could think was ‘It’s taken my sticker off!’.

As Tierney notes, the process was far from simple.

The story of the Victorian-based businesses’ entry into GT racing starts earlier than that, however, as Tierney remembers. “We had taken on the Victorian distribution for ELF Racing Fuels and lubricants but we grabbed Tasmania as well – we wanted Targa Tasmania and were providing product to guys like Steve Glenney in his Nissan GTR,” Tierney said. “Out of the blue however we got a call from Phil Hughes at Maranello Motorsport saying they needed fuel for this Ferrari they were running. At

“Maranello wanted proper 102 RON FIA fuel for the Ferrari as it just wouldn’t run on anything else. The car had been developed on the stuff in Europe and they needed it in Australia: we had limited stock as we were dyno tuning WRX and EVO rally cars and the fuel was achieving great results - yet the regulations over here did not yet cover FIA fuels.” “Phil Hughes’ phone call was a pivotal moment because at that point we had zero customers in GT racing, we had no logistics planned for the fuel into the Clipsal 500 and we had to quite literally smuggle the stuff into the track to get it to the team. “Shell were the dominant fuel


provider with 98 RON at the time being the control fuel for V8 Supercars and they just didn’t want to know about an FIA spec/102 RON alternative, but that one call to get a 50-litre drum into our Richmond base set the wheels in motion for today.” Today, as it turns out, sees RaceFuels as the premier fuel supplier to GT racing in Australia – both for the Australian GT Championship’s sprint and endurance titles plus the new trophy series and the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour enduro. It’s a mighty change from smuggling fuel into Clipsal so one lone Ferrari could perform at its best. “It hasn’t lost momentum since,” Tierney says. “We’ve gone from Phil and Allan needing better fuel for their one car to 12 years later enjoying a great relationship with Australian GT and the Bathurst 12 Hour and we now provide fuel to the entire field. “That one phone call really did change our history, though my overriding memory of the whole experience was Allan whacking the wall at turn eight and removing the first ever ELF Sticker on a GT car in Australia! He was an incredible driver and that weekend of racing was phenomenal.” The RaceFuels operation for Phillip Island’s GT spectacular is likely to be slightly more advanced than the sole 50-litre drum that fuelled the Maranello Ferrari all those years ago. Capacity grids and the first ever round featuring concurrent rounds of both the Endurance and Sprint championships mean that there’s plenty of juice needed to keep the grid running. “It’s a massive excersise and we’ve brought in 16,000 litres. Sean Scott (RaceFuels Operations manager) and I met with the French executives back in November, projecting volumes and orders for 2016 and we had smoke coming off the calculator! They were quite surprised with the growth of GT racing in Australia over the past 18 months. This weekend at Phillip Island we need 80 200 litre drums of fuel, that is an entire shipping container’s worth,” Tierney explained. “With GT racing being so competitive these days the cars are being developed around their fuel and a lot of them are tuned to run on LMS 102 racing fuel. It’s designed for these cars and it’s the same stuff they use in the Blancpain Sprint and Endurance titles in Europe. “Walkinshaw GT3 are running it in the new Porsche 911 GT3R and that’s another indication of how important it is.” It will be a satisfying moment when a full grid accelerates away from the green flag for the start of the 101-lap enduro on Sunday afternoon. A 12 year journey from one drum of fuel to becoming a critical part of what is now the top GT series in the Southern hemisphere. “The funny thing is,” Tierney added, “is that all the cars carry a sticker these days but I still get annoyed when one gets removed!”
